Convention attendees and foodies alike will appreciate a stay at the Best Western Convention Center Hotel. Located on Midtown Manhattan's west side, it is just around the corner from the Javits Convention Center, and if you head 2.5 blocks west to Ninth Avenue, you can start a gastronomic exploration of a globe's worth of ethnic restaurants. (The 20-block stretch from 37th to 57th on Ninth Avenue is filled with places to experience international cuisine.) You can head to the Hudson River, less than 10 minutes from the hotel, and check out the views, or hoof it 15 minutes to the TKTS booth in Times Square to buy discounted day-of-show tickets. Madison Square Garden and Penn Station are both less than a mile away. The top-notch Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, featuring a giant aircraft carrier and a cruise-missile submarine, is a 15-minute walk northwest of the hotel.
The hotel runs a shuttle service to the airport for a surcharge, and provides tour assistance and luggage storage. There is a 24-hour business center and computer station.
Wherever you're heading, you can start the day out right with a complimentary continental breakfast, including eggs and freshly baked pastries. Stay in touch via complimentary wireless Internet access, provided throughout the hotel. Need to nosh? Satisfy your stomach with a midnight snack from the vending-machine room.
In your guestroom, you can make yourself a relaxing cup of tea and watch free Showtime on the 40-inch TV. If you need to finish up work, you'll appreciate the ergonomic chair at the desk and the complimentary wired and wireless internet access. And you can breathe easy – the Best Western Convention Center Hotel is entirely non-smoking.
